I wanted to try something different than the whey protein I normally get. I had seen good things about Orgain Organic Protein Plant-Based Powder when researching online. It was only a few dollars more than my normal protein powder so why not for all organic vegan protein. My post cancer father has had excellent health results from following a strict organic vegan diet. I not only use the protein powder in my fruit smoothies, but with milk or almond milk, some before and the rest after my workout. The first thing I noticed when opening the powder was the wonderful smell. And secondly, the fine texture. These supported what I discovered to be the best texture and taste of any protein powder I have ever used. Ever. The taste is a full flavor without a sickly sweet or plain cardboard after taste. I am drinking a shaker of almond milk, ice, and 2 scoops of Orgain Chocolate as I write this review.
My biggest pet peeve with protein powder is the clumpy, waxy flakes that stick to the container when manually mixing. I don’t usually want to whip up a smoothie every time I workout. Orgain protein powder mixes the best, better than meal replacement powders even. So the taste and texture are the best, how about how I feel using it? I am sugar sensitive, too many carbs at once and I will get very tired. Protein and whole grains will balance processed sugar from assimilating too fast. Some protein powders that taste sweet really do a number on me. On the other hand, some protein powders make me feel heavy and have a bland cardboard taste. Orgain protein powder does not make me feel heavy or tired from sugar. On the contrary, it makes me feel like working out, not edgy like from an energy drink. More like after you have B vitamins calm and also want to go do something like jogging or workout. I did not expect that. And so far, I have not needed to use any recovery drinks after a workout. I just finish my shake after my exercise and I am good. Definitely worth a try, for the price and results you will not be disappointed.
Orgain Organic Protein Plant-Based Powder is the best tasting and texture of any protein powder I have used. A few dollars more than normal grocery store whey protein, but the results are worth it.
